From the publisher:
A Glimmer of Hope in a Darkened Soul...
Mightiest of Dark Medieval warriors, knights on horseback have cut a swath of crusade and war across Europe. Lords of men and slayer of infidels, they attract the childer of Caine like maggots to dead flesh. Some vampires seek out knights solely as pawns in their power games, but others look to Chivalry as a way to stave off the Beast.
And a Stream of Blood on a Drawn Blade?
Across Europe and Outremer, vampiric knights fight in midnight tournaments and shadow crusades. Knightly orders of Cainites pursue goals both blessed and unholy and seek to avoid the attention of Templer devil-hunters and other chivalrous threats.
